The workplace presents many hazards - some may be obvious such as dangerous machinery or chemicals, whilst others may be less apparent, such as things like asbestos, vibrating equipment and noise pollution which may lead to industrial diseases, such as mesothelioma and Vibration White Finger.
However great the risk of injury, employers have a duty of care to their staff and customers to prevent any illnesses or accidents in the workplace. If you have contracted an industrial disease due to your work you are legally entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering and loss of wages.

We deal with a variety of industrial disease compensation cases including:
You may be worried about making a claim against your employer for fear of repercussions and damaging colleague relationships. There is no need to have these concerns as any claim will be made against your employer’s insurance company. This means that it is extremely unlikely that there will be any ramifications at work.
Many of the industrial illness compensation claims that we have dealt with have resulted in improved working conditions for employees and the prevention of further claims. Therefore, by pursuing your case you could be helping prevent another colleague contracting an illness.
Industrial disease claims require an experienced and knowledgeable solicitor who understands the issues and complexities surrounding your circumstances. For example, illnesses caused by working conditions can have a profound impact on those suffering the illness (physically, psychologically and financially).
With YouClaim we will be able to assist you when it comes to getting the compensation you deserve. Our panel solicitors have years of experience when it comes to handling claims and have been able to gain millions of pounds in compensation for those who have suffered from diseases those listed above.
